It is with heavy hearts and great sadness we announce that Alvarina has passed away peacefully at the age of 85.

Left to mourn are her daughters Ana (Joe), Gorrett, grandchildren Sarah, Matthew, and Sofia.

She is survived by her sister Maria Estella, sister-in-law Maria Fatima, and many nieces and nephews.

Alvarina was predeceased by husband Nascimento, brother Manuel, parents Antonio and Alvarina.

She was born in Pico, Acores and married her soulmate Nascimento in 1960. In 1969 they immigrated to Canada where they settled to start a new life in Winnipeg.

Alvarina was a loving wife, Mother, and grandmother. She was truly amazing helping her family raise these three beautiful grandchildren. They were the light of her life. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, knitting and crocheting.
